Re: Finally bought my new A65 with kit lens

I bought in Sweden so the prices are higher here. But the policy on the shop where I bought it is that if the prices on any local shop in Sweden will be lower in the next 30 days, I will get the price difference back. So I am hoping the prices starts to decrease now...

Charging the battery now and waiting to be able to try it out.

What I noticed so far is that the 18-55 mm lens runs smoothly from 18 to 40 mm but after that I need to apply some more force to go to 55 mm. It's not a problem if I turn the zoom ring fast but if I turn it slowly it tend to stuck until I use more force.

Is this normal or should I return the lens?

Hope you got it for $949, and not $999, Amazon sells it for $949 now.
